The story of Old India started in Dec 1999 with a vision to start up the first restaurant in the country to offer the real cuisine of the mogul kings and princes with contemporary style.
After many months of waiting for planning to come through from the powers of English Heritage and following an elaborate refurbishment programme the restaurant finally opened its doors in 2002.
If you visit the Great Cities of Old India, there are fantastic examples of work carried out by various Victorian and Edwardian Architects reaching a climax with ”Lutyens’ Design for the Government and civic Buildings for New Delhi. These Architects were able to create a successful fusion of details from the Classical World and elements from Indian Architecture. This has been the inspiration behind the conversion of this Magnificent Mahogany panelled Grade II Listed building into an Indian Restaurant, creating a Colonial Club Atmosphere that would be both recognisable to British Residents and Indian Princes alike.
